#127 of 200 Camry parking brake

The parking brake button is stuck "in" thus the brake handle goes up and down but does not engage. I sprayed in through the handle, to no avail. 'Thoughts?

He means the ratchet doesn't work.

Oh sorry, you mean the button in the hand brake lever between the seats.
You're going to have to take it apart, and hope that it is a bind in the locking mechanism as opposed to broken. If broken, you may want to check prices at a junk yard and compare that to the dealer.
#131 of 200 06 camry LE brake noise
Feb 12, 2008 (9:47 am)
I have a 2006 Camry LE, and I've been hearing a low squeaky noise from the brakes (it appears to be the front ones). This noise only occurs when I'm stopping on cold brakes--for instance, in the morning when I'm going to work. The noise ceases after the third or fourth time of breaking. After that no matter if I'm breaking at a red light, breaking from a high, or from a low speed, I do not hear anything.
Could this be a sign that my breaks need cleaning or perhaps even need changing?
Also I've noticed a low rattling noise when I'm stopped at a light. The noise goes away when I shift into neutral (with the brakes still applied). Could my rotors be warped?

Sometimes a lil morning dew......snow.... salt...... settling on them can cause that until you use the brake a couple of times. Then they warm up, dry off and are quiet. Ive also noticed that even more so when the car has been sitting a few days or more. And not just my camry....my bmw.and my other cars do it as well.

Same here, all cars do it in the morning the first few times, or whenever they have sat for a while with some moisture on the discs.
#136 of 200 Brake lights don't work on 04 Camry
Apr 12, 2008 (6:17 pm)
I have an 04 Camry XLE 4 Cyl. The upper rear brake light works, but the ones in the tail light area don't (both sides). The bulbs look ok, and the Stop fuse is ok as well. What is the next thing that I should check, and is this a common problem? Thanks for your help! Deb
